Beyond Shells: live Junonia snail at Bailey-Matthews National Shell Museum on Sanibel Island, Florid
The Bailey-Matthews National Shell Museum connects people to the natural world through their love of shells and the animals that create them.
One of the best things to do on Sanibel, the Museum offers fun and educational activities for the whole family. Kids love touching live mollusks in our touch pools, winning scavenger hunt prizes, and watching our Giant Pacific Octopus (not all mollusks grow shells!). Come visit the only museum in the United States devoted solely to shells and mollusks!
